Location helpful, space sufficient, kitchen lacking
Enjoyed the decor, layout of space, and size of space for our family of 4. Disappointed in the lack of kitchen supplies and utensils. Pot holders, dish rags, dish towels, Saran Wrap, foil, casserole dish, and dish drainer would have been helpful. Welcome/resource book provided by owner was helpful! and encouraged contacting if something wasn’t up to expectation. I chose not to call since we were there for only 2 nights and changed my meal plan instead. The book also asked that shoes be removed inside the space and both of my girls ended up with splinters from a few rough patches on the hard wood floor. The bathroom vanity and baseboards could use a good dusting with the bedding, bath towels, living room, and kitchen being very clean. We liked the experience of staying in the older remodeled apartment however we all agreed that staying again was not a must.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. It was clean and well-furnished. We found that it was a 10 to 20 minute drive from everything we wanted to see and was within walking distance of coffee shops and parks. It’s an older home, so guests should be prepared for squeaky floors and to hear their neighbors steps above them, although it wasn’t a problem or concern for us. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Kansas City.
Not up to code
I realize everyone’s standards are different, and I will admit mine are fairly high, but I would not recommend this property. Coming from Iowa I’m accustomed to building codes. I assume MO has similar such codes, but honestly, I doubt many are met in this unit. I could go on and on, but for the sake of my time and yours, let me just summarize by saying… The property is obviously older and has had many updates, but the workmanship of repairs is poor, and in some instances dangerous. For example, when I unplugged an item, I realized the faceplate wasn’t property attached and such all the wires came out of the wall. The internet didn’t work, thankfully the upper unit was functional and we were able to take advantage. The ‘shower’ was a clawfoot tub with a hacked shower head and curtain wrapped around it all, very difficult to get in and out, not to mention just tacky and not very clean. The dishwasher was not installed correctly and had inches of space above… Again, maybe some people wouldn’t care about some of this, but I was traveling with my husband and two small children, I didn’t expect nails to be sticking up out of the floor. And overall, not clean. I wiped a few spots on the floor when my daughters spilled items and was appalled at the black on the cloth. I surely hope the owner doesn’t rely solely on the guests to clean between tenants. I won’t be renting from this owner again.
Great place and good location!
This was a perfect 2 bedroom for the 4 of us...there was a pullout couch as well but since there was only one bathroom I think 4 people was plenty. I would not recommend it for elderly or anyone who has trouble with stairs...the lovely old clawfoot bathtub is very high to climb into and the apartment is a flight of stairs up to the front door and another 1 and a half flights inside. I would suggest getting a footstool for the kitchen. For some reason the renovated cabinets are placed so high that I had trouble reaching even the lowest shelf and couldn't reach the glasses even using a chair....had to get my husband to do it. But the apartment has beautiful huge windows and high ceilings and Lance has thought of some nice amenities like the blinds that keep the early morning sun out. We had a great time!
Condo is in great location. Beautifully decorated. Beds super comfortable. Would stay here again!
